Ten Reasons Muhammad Could Not Have Authored the Qur’an.

Source: http://www.manyprophetsonemessage.com/2014/03/18/ten-reasons-muhammad-could-not-have-authored-the-quran/


A problem facing many Scriptures is multiple authorship over many generations. The Old Testament consists of 39 books authored by numerous individuals over a period of many centuries. The New Testament contains 27 books written by multiple authors spanning a period of nearly half a century. The questions and uncertainties that surround the chronology and authorship of the Bible, for example many of the books were written anonymously, only serve to hinder one from accepting, at least wholesale, that it is the pure word of God.

This is not a problem that affects the Qur’an. There is no doubt that Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was the person responsible for transmitting the Qur’an. There are mass historical reports that support this claim, and the Qur’an itself confirms that it was revealed to him. Although Muhammad was responsible for transmitting the Qur’an, was he its author? It will now be demonstrated that it is impossible for Muhammad to have been the author of the Qur’an: Read more of this post

Quran 9:5 – Sword Verse

by  • MARCH 4, 2014


Kaleef K. Karim

Whenever critics bring verses of the Quran to demonstrate that Islam is violent, that it sanctions Muslims to kill non-Muslims (as claimed by them), they do a cut and paste of a verse and try to hide its context. They don’t show the previous and the verses after, what it actually says. Take for example this passage,

“So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.” – Quran 9:5

Fight Those Who Do Not Believe” – Surah 9:29

Long article providing a reference about surah 9:29

1. Introduction

This article examines chapter 9, verse 29 of the Quran, in its historical context. Some claim that the verse (Q. 9:29) endorses and ‘sanctions Muslims to kill innocent Christians and Jews’. This is simply not true. We undertook the task to investigate the verse (Q. 9:29) as a result of some critics misusing, and twisting the verse to mean something it has never intended to say. It is only appropriate to respond to their claims, given the fact that, not even Prophet Muhammed (p) interpreted it as such during his own life. Read more of this post

    Miracles and Prophesies of Al-Qur’an

    How did Previous Scriptures alter if God says His Words cannot be Changed?

    Without pondering upon all the verses of the Qur’an, it is impossible to understand it correctly. Furthermore, this understanding can only be granted if God wishes. This fact has been revealed in the following verse:

     “It is such that We clarify the Revelations to a people who think.” (Qur’an 10:24)

    This means, people who do not think over the Qur’an’s verses, cannot grasp it correctly.

    Having true faith in God is also an essential prerequisite to understand the Qur’an correctly:

    “When you recite the Qur’an, We place an obscuring veil between you and those who do not believe in the hereafter. And we have placed coverings over their hearts, preventing them from understand it, and a heaviness in their ears. And if you mention your Lord alone in the Qur’an, they turn their backs and run away.” (Qur’an 17:45) Read more of this post

    Refuting The Argument Regarding “Allah’s Words Do Not Change”

    By Bassam Zawadi

    Christian Argument

    Surah 6:115 and 18:27 state that no one can change the words of Allah. The Torah and Gospel were the words of Allah. Since they couldn’t have changed that means that Islam testifies to the incorruptibility of the text of the Bible.

    My Response
    Here are the verses in question:

    Surah 6:115

    The word of thy Lord doth find its fulfilment in truth and in justice: None can change His words: for He is the one who heareth and knoweth all. S. 6:115

    Surah 18:27

    And recite (and teach) what has been revealed to thee of the Book of thy Lord: none can change His Words, and none wilt thou find as a refuge other than Him. S. 18:27 Read more of this post

    Equality of Men and Women in Al-Qur’an

    The Quran makes it clear that Women and Men are equal in the eyes of God

    One of the most misunderstood areas in Islam is that of the position of women in the religion. The general perception in the West is that Muslim women are subjugated and almost seen as property. While not all Muslims deal with women as inferior, this is unfortunately true in some segments of the Muslim world and this treatment is supposedly justified by the religion. However, when we look at the basis of the religion, the Quran, we see a very different picture. In the Quran God makes it very clear that men and women are equal.

    [3:195] Their Lord responded to them: “I never fail to reward any worker among you for any work you do, be you male or female – you are equal to one another. Thus, those who immigrate, and get evicted from their homes, and are persecuted because of Me, and fight and get killed, I will surely remit their sins and admit them into gardens with flowing streams.” Such is the reward from GOD. GOD possesses the ultimate reward. Read more of this post

    Reward for Good Deeds in the Quran

    Verse’s from the Holy Qur’an referring to the Believers who do good deeds and their reward of Jannah (i.e. Paradise).

    And give glad tidings to those who believe and do righteous good deeds, that for them

    will be Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise). Every time they will be provided with a fruit there from, they will say: “This is what we were provided with before,” and they will be given things in resemblance and they shall have therein Azwajun Mutahharatun (purified mates or wives) and they will abide therein forever.


    ➢Surah Al-Baqarah 2: Ayah 25

    And those who believe and do RIGHTEOUS GOOD DEEDS, they are dwellers or paradise, they will dwell therein forever.

    ➢Surah Al-Baqarah 2: Ayah 82

    But those who believe and do DEEDS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, We shall admit them to Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), abiding therein forever. Therein they shall have Azwajun Mutahharatun (purified mates or wives), and We shall admit them to shades wide and ever deepening. Read more of this post
